Once upon a time, there was a little girl who loved to write...




Humorous and heartfelt, The Adventures of Mr. Schnoozle is a delightful reminder that, no matter what our age, magical things happen when we step outside our comfort zone. As the world becomes increasingly fractured, this novel shows the power of friendship; that we are better together because of, and not in spite of, our differences.

A delightful series of stories that are reminiscent of the Raggedy Ann and Andy books, The Adventures of Mr. Schnoozle is enjoyable for readers of all ages. My school-age daughter and I both liked following the fantastical adventures of the little green creature who had a lot to learn. Gretchen Lindemann did a beautiful job of picking up where her late father left off in writing these stories, and now the next generation of children can enjoy them. This book is a charming read.

"The future is not ours to see, que sera, sera..." 

As sung by Doris Day, of course. I'll be frank: the future of Mr. Schnoozle is unclear. He and I have a lot in common that way. What I DO know is that I will endeavour to contribute more to my blog in the hope of inspiring and uplifting others. In the meantime, I have more copies of dear Schnoozle's adventures, which he also hopes will inspire the folk lucky enough to explore with him! Are you feeling lucky? ;)



I am a writer. I am also a daughter, a sister, a niece, a partner, a nurse, a dancer, a hugger, a traveler, adventurer, and a lover of cozy tea shops and used books (particularly the way they smell.) Each of these things influences the other and all of them influence my writing.


I have written, celebrated, and thirsted after stories as long as I can remember. Stories, to me, are what make this world go 'round. Stories are what make us human. From oral tradition to feature films, we have woven one tale after another over the centuries in order to teach, to entertain, and to evoke emotion.


My goal – my passion – is to continue this tradition of story telling. Particularly by writing children’s books. Since our future belongs to the children of today, who better to write stories for than the young among us? Beyond the sheer joy of wordsmithing and story-telling, I have been inspired to write by the writings of my father. When he departed from this world, he left behind a legacy of love and creativity. It is this legacy that I am carrying on, one word at a time.
